Virtual Drag: Serving VR Realness

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and ExtremeVR

VIRTUAL Drag is an encounter with drag queens and kings via virtual reality headsets and projections.

These cyberspace encounters bring the user face to face with the magnificent Philmah Bocks, the divine Art Simone, the knee weakening Transylvanian Gypsy Kings, and Jackie Hammer, who is simply a bit of a hot mess.

Virtual Drag is a free, immersive virtual reality experience featuring 3D scans of drag performers set in fantasy environments created by artists Alison Bennett, Megan Beckwith & Mark Payne.
